Judge Rules in favor of lesbian couple

I’m glad these ladies won their suit. But I would like to point out that the defense lawyer’s got it wrong. None of her rights were violated. Especially not her First Amendment rights. These women aren’t trying to stop her from exercising her religion. She is free to worship who she wants, where she wants and how she wants, but she does NOT have the right to impose her beliefs on other individuals which is what she is doing by denying the Lesbian couple a place to stay simply because she disagrees with their lifestyle.

HONOLULU (AP) — A judge has ruled a Hawaii bed and breakfast violated the law when two women were denied a room because they’re gay.

The Hawaii First Circuit Court judge ruled in favor of a Southern California couple who sued Aloha Bed & Breakfast for discrimination in 2011, Lambda Legal announced Monday. In 2007, Diane Cervelli and Taeko Bufford tried to book a room at the bed and breakfast because it’s in Hawaii Kai, the same east Honolulu neighborhood where the friend they were visiting lived.

When Cervelli specified they would need one bed, the owner asked if they were lesbians. Cervelli responded truthfully and the owner said she was uncomfortable having lesbians in her house because of her religious views, the lawsuit said.
